From a Man City fans point of view the answer is clearly what a waste of money and for that I'd want Ronaldo, Suarez, Messie or Bale. From a business point of view it seems it's all about image rights and shirt sales? Even heard on the radio that Messi covered his face when leaving the pitch at Wembley v Liverpool so he couldn't be photographed and fans who had paid good money to see him were told to stop taking pictures as it infringed his image rights! The world's gone mad. I don't fully understand the image rights value but what a great time to be a famous footballer. Presumably every photo of them that's published anywhere generates money??
